Paper Money

This is my last photo for February challenge where I wanted to post a photo daily. I actually cheated because I scheduled one photo per day, and slowly processed and posted a picture here! I saw the uncle below in Kampung Cina – Kuala Terengganu. It was raining, and I needed a good cup of…

Meeting the Locals – Taib Aur

On the first night of my trip in Kuala Terengganu, I was too tired to go anywhere for dinner. As the hotel is pretty secluded from town, I decided to Google and look for restaurants nearby to the hotel. True enough, I found a place called Ganu Cafe which is about 3 mins drive from…

Keropok Losong

Keropok Losong is one of those delicacies that are unique to Terengganu (so I think). It is made of fish and flour generally and boiled into the water to cook it. Honestly – I love this stuff because it tasted healthy. Plus its not easy to find boiled keropok. Usually – keropok comes fried! Here…

Lost Art of Boat Making

Few decades ago, Pulau Duyong was known worldwide for its boat making industry. Fast forward many years ahead, it only have two boat makers. I managed to visit the boat makers and experience myself how they built the boats. Its quite amazing. It is quite sad to see how this industry going to sunset soon….

Boat Painting

My recent trip to Kuala Terengganu was during the monsoon season. The waves was stronger and the rain was more frequent. In fact, my first day was the only day when the sun was out, the rest of the days – it was raining and windy the whole day. The photo above shows the boat…

Kite Flying at Pantai Batu Buruk

Another photo from my Kuala Terengganu trip. The first day was really hot. In fact, I really thought that I will get sunburn out of this trip, but lucky enough, my skin was able to handle the battering from the sun. Though – this is not recommended! The photo above shows a kite flying in…

My Editing Workflow

I thought today I wanted to share my editing workflow. I’ve changed my workflow many times, and this is my latest workflow. As I generally shoot black and white now, the workflow is far more straightforward as I don’t need to worry about colours. Please ignore the number of photos that I have because I…

Masjid Tengku Tengah Zaharah

I made a random trip to Kuala Terengganu this weekend because I needed a break. It’s a short trip. I still have not decided (today is the 2nd day) whether I want to extend another day or go back tomorrow. The photo above is shot after I reached Kuala Terengganu (KT). Drove to the mosque…

Another take at Masjid Tengku Tengah Zaharah

Back in 2005, I made a visit to Kuala Terengganu as part of the Monsoon Cup. I can’t help it but stop at this mosque to capture the elegance of the mosque. Its amazing that I was able to find this mosque despite the fact that there wasn’t much adoption of Google and Google Maps…

Throwback: Masjid Tengku Tengah Zaharah

It has been a while since I last posted a photo or even a blog post. I have been pretty busy lately and has not gotten much time off to do things that I want to do. I have resigned from my current post though, and will be moving on to a new career and…
